Padres pummel Capuano, Dodgers 9-2
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Jason Marquis pitched three-hit ball over 7 2-3 innings for his first win of the season and Alexi Amarista tied a career high with four RBIs, leading the San Diego Padres to a 9-2 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.
Marquis (1-1) allowed his only run on Mark Ellis’ bases-loaded sacrifice fly and struck out five.
Nick Hundley and Yonder Alonso each had two RBIs, helping the Padres win their second straight over Los Angeles after a 2-10 start and handing the Dodgers their third straight loss.
Chris Capuano (0-1) came out of the bullpen to make his first start of the season in place of $147-million right-hander Zack Greinke, whose collarbone was broken in a brawl last week.
